Lish Skec‘s poem takes the rhythm of the trains passing by on the overhead rails which curve alongside the Yarra between Flinders Street and Southern Cross stations. Probably the best way to get the feeling would be to take the train between these two stops, but we don’t want to force anyone on public transport if they’re not up for it. Alternatively, you can walk alongside the dirty brown beauty of the upside down river, along Southbank Promenade, across Queensbridge St to the Yarra Promenade. Stop before Kings Way and you should be able to see the various landmarks in Lish’s poem, the highlights and the lowlights of the neon end of town.
